Seek your geas in a vivid fantasy world, October 15, 2012
In the style of a role-playing fantasy game, you are presented with choices to shape your character - by choosing which symbolic items to take you determine qualities of the character's character and appearance. The writing varies with these attributes although the names and personalities of others are consistent. I think the character creation serves the role to introduce the player to the over-arching plot and the culture of the fictional world - I don't think it changes the approach to puzzles.
You then join your Father on a trade mission to a far-off city. At the city gates, the guards mark you out and insist that you meet the High Priest.
One way or another you will undertake a spiritual journey to discover your geas (destiny) - if any.
I enjoyed the rich world-building. The interactive scenes (interleaved between reading a page of description) were well-implemented and drove the drama forward.
